The new Zagat Survey for Portland hit the inbox this week…

…and we are in it!

The Zagat Survey was brainchild of Tim and Nina Zagat, who polled their friends and published the results in 1979 as a way to locate the best dining experiences in New York City. The survey quickly grew beyond their immediate circle of friends, and has come to include over 70 cities, including Portland.

Over a quarter of a million people have contributed their opinions and comments on restaurants, hotels, theaters, golf courses, and shopping. The bound guide is available by subscription, a handy and handsome publication to carry along to your favorite city. The Zagat.com site is free to the public.

So how did we do? Very well, thank you. The ratings are on a thirty-point scale, and the higher, the better. We are happy to say that the downtown Portland Pendleton store scored very highly. So did the flagship Pendleton Home store. And, now that we think of it, so did the Woolen Mill Store.

Yes, we had a trifecta of nice Zagat scores.  We got a kick out of the quotations from survey-answerers, which are set off in quotes. Our staff “goes above and beyond.” Our “incredible quality” is “hard to beat.”

Our favorite quote? “It’s a Pendleton…enough said.”
